The Harrell Y Stent*, designed with James H. Harrell II, M.D.,
allows physicians to address airway complications such as
anastomosis and stenosis. The stent may also be used to minimize
chronic bronchial strictures due to tuberculosis and malignancies.
The posts help prevent migration of the stent after placement.
Inserted endoscopically, the specially designed bifurcated
tracheobronchial tube fits snugly into the distal trachea, the carina
and the proximal bronchi.
Fabricated of flexible, biocompatible implant-grade silicone, the Harrell Y Stent allows humidification and phonation.
The Hood Intended Use and Instruction Manual, which is supplied with each product, provides detailed information on insertion technique, sterilization, and postoperative care.
